Typical Client Questions

How do you define the project?

After an initial meeting, I will develop a proposal for your review that includes the term of the engagement, an articulation of the outcome, and a payment schedule. We will work together to insure the proposal meets your needs.

Suppose I am unclear about what we need from you?

For a flat fee I can conduct an initial assessment and diagnostic, which would define the issue to be addressed and provide a proposal regarding scope of work, the amount of time to be spent, and outcomes to be achieved.

Suppose the project is taking less time — or more time — than we expected? Suppose there are other factors that impact our ability to achieve results?

We will in our scope of work set a regular time to evaluate progress under the contract. This will give us an opportunity, separate from the contract work itself, to determine whether we need to redefine our working relationship, its terms and desired outcomes.

How much is this going to cost?

I will work with you to meet your needs within your budget. I prefer not to bill clients on an hourly basis, but rather to define deliverables and a payment schedule.
